Booking appointments online - All available slots are for routine appointments only.
Nurse appointments are not available online.
For any specific clinics e.g Travel advice or an appointment with one of our Practice nurses please contact the Surgery.
We offer a variety of types of appointments at different times of the year. We have a same day nurse/doctor clinic in Non Term Time, Acute Team Service in Term Time, nurse practitioner clinics, appointments with nurses and GP appointments.
NHS targets currently set out that all patients will be able to see a primary care professional within 24 hours and a GP within 48 hours.
To ensure this in Non Term Time we run nurse/doctor clinics for people who want to be seen on the same day. The patient is seen by the nurse initially who, in 65% of cases, can deal with the problem herself, and if she cannot she refers the patient on to the GP.
To ensure this in Term time we run an innovative Acute Team Service where a member of the clinical staff will contact you via Telephone Consultation to make an initial assessment, if they feel as though this warrants more investigation they will invite you down to a surgery of your choice for a Face to Face assessment.
You can book an appointment with a GP or the nurse practitioner separately. We do not book very far in advance with the GP because we find that more people forget to turn up, thus wasting valuable appointments.
You can also view, book or cancel GP appointments booked online through the practice website link See the EMIS Access page for further details.
Access the online appointment system
Appointments can be made at either our King Street Site or University Site with the Doctor and are in 10 minute slots, these are available up to Ten days in advance.
We have extended opening hours at the University Site to accommodate those who find it difficult to get into surgery during surgery hours.
All doctors and nurses have to work from both sites so this cuts down the number of appointments at each one. We do this to be fair to everyone.
Please be prepared to give the receptionist some details of your illness if you are asking for an appointment so she can direct you to the quickest and most appropriate clinician and appointment. The receptionist are highly skilled and trained and are bound by the Practice and NHS code of confidentiality. You can of course refuse to do so if you prefer.
Nurse Practitioner Appointments
Tina and Grace are our nurse practitioner's and work alongside the Doctors in the Practice to provide a medical service including holding their own surgeries. They can examine, diagnose new illnesses and make decisions regarding patient management on the basis of their assessment. They work alongside the doctors and see patients who need to be seen on the same day.
You may be offered an appointment with them as an alternative to a doctor. They have experience and training beyond that of a practice nurse and can usually deal with your problem themselves. If they want advice a doctor is available. Tina is also qualified for diabetes care and sees patients who are newly diagnosed and those who need an annual review.
